More To Come.........
Wow!!!!!!!!! What a great experience!!!!!! I can't wait to see/hear more!!!!!!!
What a magnificent house! The intricate work is amazing.
I am so glad to read whenever you go out and about. Not only are we rewarded with great pictures that you take on your outings, but wonderful history as well.
Given the size of the home and the intricacies of the tile work, I should think your series could go on for some time. It's certainly not boring for anyone with even the slightest interest in art and architecture.
Wow! More gorgeous photos of that wonderful house! Thanks for the mosaic details and amazing history as well. I can imagine the pleasure you had heard Otto playing Rachmaninoff...while you I took pictures of the house...
Love your mosaic too. So creative and well done!
It's very nice to have a visit of a blog friend... I would love make a visit to you someday...
Kisses and hugs to you and to Sweetie too.
Hiya Naomi, wish it was that you bring to the Hollywood sign and the Tile House :)
Absolutely fascinating and intriguing...I love it :D
I'm so excited about this and I'm so glad the family know how much we all appreciate - through your initiative- these wonderful creations.
Another Picasso in our midst.
How nice that you had the young visitors with you. The young man looked strong enough to give you a piggy back up the steps.
Wow those tiles are pretty. And I always love to see the Hollywood sign. Several years ago I had to fly to LA to meet the FBI to testify about a check that had been stolen from our company by a group there. I didn't get to see much since it was business but the FBI agent was nice enough to drive my to see the Hollywood sign before I flew back to NC! It was on my bucket list.
Hope you are well. I have been getting ready for bday parties, egg hunts and been very sick last week so I haven't been on the blog world much! Now Toonces if fighting the same viral infection I had bless his heart. 89 here today and lightening took out our heat pump so it is hard to be sick and no air!
Thank You once again, for sharing the pictures of this great house, these are gorgeous photo's treasures that would never get to see other wise, I know that there are lots of colors in the tiles, but the Blue being the proment color, lovely. Am always envious of any one who can be so creative, Am one of those people who can not draw a stick figure. So Thank You again for sharing, the beauty around you.
Its finally nice spring weather here, YEA. Hope this finds you well.

I'm so glad he got to visit your blog and read all the wonderful things you and others have said about him...and see his wonderful work in pictures! He's amazing!
I love his self-portrait in tile. (Mr. Ehling, if you're reading this, how'd you do it??)
I'm glad that you got to visit with your blogger friend and her husband. One day it will be MEEEE visiting YOU!! :)
With each successive post on this fabulous house, I am more amazed at the creativity and imagination that this man has. The designs are so intricate and beautiful! What a treasure and how wonderful that you are sharing it with us. I hope you get to meet George soon and see that wall!!
And BTW: your tables are NOT crude at all, they are beautiful!!
That house certainly does take one's breath away! How lovely of you to take some fellow bloggers past the house and then to actually meet the son of the owner and then speak to the owner is great! You brought this man's art to a wider audience.
That self-portrait is awesome - and that window with the cubism kind of illusion is something else.
This whole thing is so serendipitous with you seeing it, photographing it, and being able to share it with the artist. Amazing and beautiful experience that you have shared.
I am so glad that you are going to meet this man Naomi!! Oh, I'm so excited!! I can't imagine how stunning his best work will be!! This is all so interesting!! How nice that you got to meet a blogger too!!
I love the tiles you did as well. I wish the pictures were in color! I have only ever seen people do those tiles on TV and they just sort of stuck them at randon, with no patterns at all, so cutting them and doing all the work that Mr. Ehling has put into his home just leaves me speechless! I'd truly just like to hug this man!! He deserves a city award or something for having such a lovely home that he created!!
I'm glad you got to do a Girls that Lunch too! I'll be looking forward to hearing/seeing all about that!! My Easter was very nice as my neighbor invited me to her house and I know most of her family, and it was very nice. The weather was perfect also!
I think I'm caught up on your blog now! As you can tell, I've been dreadfully behind!
Love and hugs,
I have my Easter Vacation Pix up... Hope you enjoy them and I also hop you had a great Easter...
Hard to imagine that the best is yet to be.
I still have a hard time figuring out how he did it ALL by himself... that looks like a lifetime of work!
I think your tables look lovely!
That second one leaning up against the wall? Reminds me of a surfboard!
That house was just amazing. It would be so easy to prowl around it for hours just looking at new things.
How awesome that you got to speak to his son! Somebody should do a coffee table book on his house and him in general. What motivated him to do this? How did he do all this? Did he have any help? How much did all this cost? Etc...
Intricate work! Especially the mosaic portrait. It's so nice that you met a blogger friend. It makes me wish that me and Odd can visit you in a nearer time frame.
I love your tables!
the self portrait in tile is wonderful
Naomi how exciting! And how wonderful you got to speak to the amazing artist and his son. And its also great you could go for a drive and get out and about with your blogging friends. I hope I can visit one of these times too. Beautiful pictures and I am so glad Mr Ehling got to see your blog and everyone's comments. What did he think of it all? I love your tables too. Is there anything Miss Naomi you cannot do? Now I have to go find Ottos comment. Take Care and hope you had no shaking building the other day with the tremors nearby.
It's so great that you are documenting this and I was wondering what George thought about it or if he knew, so I am thrilled to know that he is happy with it. Once again I am speechless over the elaborate work! His house is his canvas.
We were super fortunate to take a tour of the house today, and George directed everyone to check out your blog! Your pictures are beautiful. And the inside is just as stunning, if not more so. It was such a treat.
